  1. Delegated authority to officers to make any minor, inconsequential amendments to the Document prior to its publication (in order to correct matters of fact or aid clarity to the reader).


Reasons for the decision:

Cabinet were asked to approve the Further Draft version of the Local Plan so that public consultation could be carried out on this document.

The alternative options for each policy would be assessed as part of the Local Plan Sustainability Appraisal Report to be published in December 2016 alongside the Further Draft Local Plan for public consultation. Consultation would also help inform the council of options which could be considered as the plan progressed.
